Flawless since delivery, if you are asking me. Two years and just 13,000 miles.

Mine is a manual. My sense is that, just like BMW, the manual transmission is getting much rarer on Porsches. The...

I think you will find that fitting heated seats will be a very expensive proposition. Maybe a couple of thousand for the fronts with OE materials and labor?

I sold two cars -- 2009 Miata and 23005 M3 -- to buy my 2013 Boxster S two years ago. Yes, the 981s are wonderful -- superb handling and surprisingly practical.
